War Budget or Extortion?


On C-Span, one of the news items on Friday, Nov. 17 was this article from USA Today: 
Military May Ask $127B for Wars

WASHINGTON — The Bush administration is preparing its largest spending request yet for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, a proposal that could make the conflict the most expensive since World War II.

The Pentagon is considering $127 billion to $160 billion in requests from the armed services for the 2007 fiscal year, which began last month, several lawmakers and congressional staff members said. That's on top of $70 billion already approved for 2007.

Since 2001, Congress has approved $502 billion for the war on terror, roughly two-thirds for Iraq. The latest request, due to reach the incoming Democratic-controlled Congress next spring, would make the war on terror more expensive than the Vietnam War.

Let's think about this.  Terrorism which is actually guerilla warfare.  It is a tactic of the weak against the strong.  The 'terrorists' are individuals who operate in small cells who do hit and run fighting.  Thinking about it brings to mind when I was a child.  I had a big brother who would tease and torment me mercilessly.  Since I couldn't take him on toe to toe, I would bide my time.  I waited until his attention was on something else - and his back was turned - and my Mother was close, and I would take my revenge... and then run like hell to hide behind my Mother.  Under today's definition, my brother could have called me a terrorist - never mind that he was the real aggressor. 

We were told that the reason we had to attack Afghanistan was because they were allowing terrorists to congregate and they had terrorist training camps.  Do you remember what the terrorist training camp looked like?   It was a bunch of old tires to run through, swinging bars and an old shack.  It did look like military training for a poor country.  So we bombed the shit out Afghanistan to get rid of the terrorist camps (and everything else) and then we attacked Iraq. 

None of it makes the least bit of sense in the context of the official story plus what is happening in our country today as a result of 9-11. 

I did a search on terrorist training camps and what I found is most interesting - an article dated September 19, 2001: 

India identifies terrorist training camps



NEW DELHI, India (CNN) -- India has been working with the United States in the days following last week's hijacking attacks by sharing the locations of what it said are terrorist training camps.

Indian intelligence officials said that for more than a decade Islamic militants have been training in Afghanistan and Pakistan for a jihad, or holy war.

Sources told CNN that more than 120 camps are operating in the two countries. The camps are small, they are easy to move, and they can be difficult to track by satellite because of the region's rough terrain.

Some Indian defense officials predicted it could take a decade for the United States to root them all out.

India recently released videos shot in what it said were training camps operating in Pakistan.

The videos show men training with machine guns and heavy weapons. The men are shown practicing daring maneuvers, firing their weapons as they hang from ropes and run through obstacles.



The reason why this is so interesting is because our economy is being drained of middle class knowledge jobs that are being outsourced to India.  As such, India is the biggest winner in the war on terror.

Sikh Group Finds Calling in Homeland Security

Indian firms arming Iraq, says UK


India's attack on our economy (and make no mistake - it was an attack)  was done in stealth with the complicity of the tech industry association ITAA and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.  It was set up by Bill Clinton and the DLC which is primarily funded by the tech industry. 



Harris Miller has orchestrated the destruction of our economy by working both sides of the ocean.  Initially, the export of our high technology jobs was done in secret as explained by WIPRO Chairman Azim Premji while “speaking at a seminar organised by the All India Management Association (AIMA) and Bombay Management Association (BMA)”.[3]


“Addressing management students here, Mr Premji explained that when software services were being outsourced, it was done surreptitiously. This was done because it was the requirement of that time. The industry then stood witness to a vast number of layoffs.”

 We know that Harris Miller orchestrated the stealth attack on our economy because of a quote from Dewang Mehta, the “Father of India IT”[4].  In March of 2001 at a signing ceremony of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between NASSCOM and ITAA:

“According to Mr Mehta, Nasscom and ITAA have been working very closely together for the last five years[5]  Unfortunately, less than a month after making this statement, poor Mr. Mehta, only 38 years old, was found dead in his hotel room - died of a surprise heart attack while attending an IT conference in Australia[6] ]

Administrative Coup d'etat   (look on the left hand side of the page for both the KTI and Catherine Austin-Fitts)

The U.S.-India Business Council and the Federation of Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) are pleased to announce the Knowledge Trade Forum, the culminating event of the Knowledge Trade Initiative (KTI), to be held in Bangalore, India, November 29-30, 2001.

The KTI was launched during President Clinton’s trip to India in March 2000, and was subsequently organized under the auspices of the USIBC and FICCI. The KTI is a bilateral forum between India and the U.S. to discuss key issues affecting the trade of knowledge-based products and services between the two countries. The KTI aims to solidify Indo-US leadership in the knowledge economy by harmonizing bilateral positions on key issues affecting knowledge trade.

In 2004 Catherine Austin Fitts was interviewed on the Jim Puplava radio program to talk about U.S. government finances and mismanagement.  Fitts is  Founder and President of Solari, Inc.  And organization designed help promote 'healthy local living economies'.

In the mid-90's Jim, we knew that a huge amount of jobs and income-generating activities in America were going to get outsourced to Asia. I mean, those decisions were made in the early 90's, and we knew that was going to happen.

It doesn't make sense - and it NEVER made sense to outsource middle class knowledge jobs to India leaving the U.S. with no real economy other than Walmart.

So what are we doing in Iraq?   Spending all that money on the military that somehow is never enough to equip our soldiers?

The NYT ran a front-page photo of former President Bush with Saudi King Fahd on a trip to Saudi Arabia as part of his work for the Carlyle Group. The ice-breaking story by Leslie Wayne quoted Charles Lewis: "In a really peculiar way, George W. Bush could, some day, benefit financially from his own administration's decisions, through his father's investments. The average American doesn't know that and, to me, that's a jaw-dropper."

And in fact, the value of the Carlyle Group has increased from about $12 billion in 2001 to over $40 billion today thanks to the 'war on terror'. 


The Set-Up

In the decade prior to the millennium rollover, George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton set the stage for the coup.  Bush dismantled SAC and stood up STRATCOM.  STRATCOM is the military unit that was responsible for integrating the command structure of the Services - creating the 'Joint Command'.  This consolidation of leadership in the Services was the means by which the U.S. nuclear assets were put under the command of one man - one general and the old-line military leaders were shunted aside. 

Bill Clinton dismantled our government and privatized a significant portion of it under the guise of 'reinventing government'.   Outsourcing the Pentagon

George Bush ordered the sell-off of U.S. Assets:


Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) was authorized to review sales of U.S. assets to foreign entities


The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), an interagency committee chaired by the Department of Treasury, was authorized through the Exon-Florio Amendment to the Omnibus Trade and Competitiveness Act (1988) to review and potentially block foreign acquisitions of U.S. companies that threaten to impair U.S. national security. Exon-Florio was not adopted to halt or slow foreign investment; rather, the Amendment solely focused on those transactions that implicate U.S. national security interests. "National security" was deliberately left undefined as to allow for the greatest presidential control and discretion when determining whether to block a transaction.

CFIUS includes the following 12 members: the Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy, the Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs, the Assistant to the President for Economic Policy, Secretaries of Treasury (Chair), State, Defense, Homeland Security and Commerce, the Attorney General, the Director of the Office of Management and Budget, the U.S. Trade Representative, and the Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers.


George H.W. Bush signed Executive Order 12803 calling for the sell off of U.S. infrastructure assets.  This Executive Order was posted in only two places that the research could find.  One was on the website of the trade association for the U.S. Water Industry [6]- no doubt because they plan to use the WTO trade agreements to try and force the sale of U.S. water supplies, systems and natural resources.  The other website was Cornell University [7].  It's also posted here because Executive Order 12803 should be widely known especially after the Dubai Port debacle.


In 1987, the Carlyle Group was founded as a private investment bank located in Washington DC.  They were perfectly positioned to buy up defense businesses that were in trouble when George Bush cut defense budgets to take advantage of the supposed "Peace Dividend' due to the end of the Cold War.

Carlyle - Investing in War

And what a 'coincidence', the Carlyle Group was holding their annual meeting at the Ritz-Carlton in Washington DC on September 11, 2001. 

And the icing on the cake comes from ... one more time.... Thomas Barnett.

Page 3 of the transcript from Barnett's presentation at ICAF.

We have to locate transformation within the global vision.  We outspend the world on defense.  We’re spending over $450 billion a year.  If all we only want to defend this country, we could do it for about $100 billion per year, I’m certain.  So why are we spending $350 billion dollars  extra? I will argue we are conducting a transaction with the outside world.  We’re selling a product.  The world is buying that product when it buys our debt.  For example, we float 130 billion dollars U.S. treasuries first quarter 2003, 4/5 of it was bought by foreigners.  Two biggest buyers, Japan and China.  Two countries with huge dependencies on Middle Eastern oil.   That was a transaction whether we realize it or not.


We have an unprecedented capacity to wage war.    Nobody even comes close.  We do not have nearly the same capacity to wage peace as we’ve seen in Iraq since May of last year.  I will argue that we’ve been exporting security around the planet for the last 60 years.  For the biggest chunk of that time period we had a competitor in the process.  If we exported too much to a particular country or region, he would got pissed off.  If he did it, we got pissed off.  He went away in 1990, demand for our services skyrocket.  Here is the best measure I’ve developed working with Hank Gaffney at Simi Corporation as a consultant.  I’m going to talk about combined service crisis response days.  Meaning that if the navy, marines. the airforce and the army all send troops to say Somalia, for 100 days each, I’m going to call that 4 x 100 = 400 cumulative combined crisis response days from the services.. billable hours which I think is the best measure.  Not bombs dropped, billable hours - not just because we value our people more than anything else, but because they cost more than anything else.  Here are some numbers, here are some decades.  70’s roughly 10,000 days, not including Viet Nam on-going conflict, so we are focusing on crisis response with some level of combat days, so not humanitarian assistance or disaster relief.  80’s a rough doubling - spiking in interstate war across the system according to the great data from the University of Maryland.    Soviets go away, demand for our services increase 4-5 fold.  Best definition I’ve found of a military under real stress across the 90’s.    How did we deal with that spike?  A variety of ways.  We outsourced to contractors, all the Brown and Roots, we created a new category, military operations other than war.


Exporting Security

This most twisted way of looking at military operations is as deceptive as it is revealing.  There are a couple of ways to define 'exporting security'.  Since he is talking about the military, the immediate thought might be that you think he is talking about keeping the peace - but that's not what he's talking about - not in this era.  When you consider the entire presentation and his background, it becomes clear that what he is talking about is technology - control systems.  High Technology control systems - a net-centric world of control.  The business about billable hours is straight from the consulting business.  On page 5, it becomes clear when he says - "disconnectedness defines danger" The most accurate way to envision what he is saying is to think of the mafia selling 'security' to business owners.  If you don't think you have the need for their 'services', then they will create the need.  In other words - terrorism.

And this is where we have the convergence between India, the Carlyle Group, the technology industry, the military and the extortion budgets and the destruction of our economy, Iraq and terrorism and dissolving and dismantling our nation - literally taking it apart.


Barnett described Wall Street's game plan in a presentation he gave to the Industrial College of the Armed Forces.  The following is an excerpt from Barnett's presentation (note: he is a master at doublespeak).  The strategy below is the strategy to destroy the U.S. - not the strategy for the benefit of the U.S.

"Four elements are put together.  I’ll confess, I’m an economic determinist.  I’ll say that technology is the main driver of history.  If globalization continues to advance - all these good things will happen.  You can attach numbers to most of these in terms of per capita income.   Get them below a certain level and they stop doing a lot of these bad things and they start moving in the direction of these positive things.  But I’ll argue we have to manage carefully four crucial flows within globalization IV.  Those four crucial flows meaning resources in regions where they are plentiful have to migrate to regions where they are in scarce supply.       The movement of people is a key flow.  The money of energy is a key flow.  The movement of money - long term, foreign direct investments - not flows in and out of stock markets, not commercial bank loans but foreign direct investment - equity ownership.  Finally, the exporting of security which only the United States can do in any appreciable manner."

The movement of people - allowing our country to be invaded by illegal aliens and importing foreign workers on visas to drive our wages down. Drive our wages down to poverty level so that we can't stop the globalists from destroying our country as they attempt to establish global governance.    Energy to China to fuel their growth while starving our economy of the energy we need.  Moving money and investment out of our country via the global network and fraudulent 'free trade' agreements to China, India and Mexico.  'Exporting Security' means waging war on countries un-cooperative to the global system.  It also means the division of our military into a global force and a crippled domestic force (Northern Command).  The global force is for the global government under the United Nations.  The intent is to impose 'democracy' at the point of a gun if necessary.  They've already divided the world up into sectors and they've incorporated foreign military 'partnerships' into the global military.


Last year Yale University announced a $1 BILLION scholarship program for Indians.  Why would they do that?
